Limelight on some grey areas never discussed before _ Women, Disability & Sexuality

Lying down in my bed after long day watching how Lakshmi steers the show with some extraordinary people have always inspired me. I’ve been a big follower of ‘The Chai with Lakshmi’ show ever since, Lakshmi is a very strong character, with amazing attitude toward life.

When I met Lakshmi on a casual meet at my place last year, we shared a lot and both knew we had some connect.

  • August 13, 2014 I fb messaged: Lakshmi it was amazing to meet you …I feel so good today. Hmm there is lot I told u and lots I missed out .. anyway I often have thought when I see movies like Black, or TaareZameenPar is to seek your partnership to create a movie based on love .relationship .sex and women on wheels. Indians movies have not done any theme on this.. Neither has our society been open for such encounters. But a movie can leave a mark at this space. What you think? A simple story line with an intense character play? I just want to know if this makes sense to you? If it does we can align everything to make it happen

Today, it is all conceived together as I am so thrilled and wowed being part of ‘The Lakshmi Rebecca Show‘. Lakshmi connected all the dots together when I received a call to be in a show featuring Kalki Koechlin who played lead role in the movie “Margarita with a straw” to have a conversation on “Women, Disability & Sexuality”.

Over a decade these topics were sidelined, ignored … we realize the taboo that silenced, being stereotypes and disabled people’s sexuality has been suppressed and destroyed, over many centuries.

But, today in a modern era its about shifting attitudes, instilling awareness and enhancing lives. While these topic make ways in thinking outside the box, to vision change and acceptance, by large inclusion in society.

While the western world has swirled these subjects for many years now, how do we close the gap?
I have been receiving great feedback from many, I think it’s the right moment we redefine the peculiarity about Women, Disability & Sexuality 🙂

Watch the show & leave your comments/suggestion, while I get some The Weeknd music on – Ariana Grande Love Me Harder

Looking back at the girl & women in me is been beautiful.

As a girl my mom thought me how to take care of the emotional yet courage’s self in me, to enjoy every the stages of life and embrace every moment. She always asked me to raise one level up to face this world and to never give up. My dad taught me how to protect myself in any given situation; he holds my hands to show me I could do anything possible if I had my heart to it and walks past me to never let me fall.

My parents indeed thought my brother how to take care of his two sisters., he was a very intuitive child who understood his one sister required more care and support as he has been the best brother to whom I can lean-in for any supports and guidance throughout my life. My sister & I share a best relationship, being the oldest I take charge to advice & be bossy sometime but mostly we love hanging around eachother.

It is the family that enriches and empowers the girl, My grandma wished I experienced everything in my life, she thought me to be brave and to voice out my likes and dislikes on the other hands grandpa protected me like a flower that shouldn’t be hurt by anyone or by anything, he loved me by all this heart and I said I was whole and complete in all aspects of my life.

Lots of people have been part of uplifting different stages of my life, without whom I wouldn’t call myself complete, like those days extended families like uncles and aunts played a big role in a joint family. My education by far happened only because of my Raju uncle , he lifted me to school every day to my class in the fourth floor and so that is how I’ve been learned, All my scribes (students) who supported to scribe during my exams. Shanti Ma’am who changed the entire direction of calling in my life, My ex-boss Sundar & Sarv who believed I was a good resource to the company and many many more who stood close to realize my dreams. My gratitude overflows to them whenever I think of the times everyone is been empathetic to me and my situation.

I’ve personally grown stronger deep within be it playing a role of daughter, sister-in-law or an aunt, drawn strength every situation as friend, mentor, colleague, sister, or a friend …,,  disarmed barriers through hope and smiles.

As always remember life springs back at you for new relations, new people and new circumstances and more…As I find myself to be blessed, cared and wonderful …I wish everyone who’s making the difference in other lives and making life so special…. Happy Women’s Day! 🙂
